Inveniam Viam #RPM2015

Contemporary electroacoustic composer Stuart Russell's Invenium Viam RPM 2015 Challenge work is an epic 72 minutes of music, for your listening pleasure. An isolation pervades these lonely landscapes. The compositions end satisfyingly, and are inventive, often possessing a cinematic quality.

Surprising moments are found in Amundsen  / Ellsworth 25 and Andrée 97 / Nobile 28, where some of the tones become almost sirenlike, reverberating across the ice as the airships go majestically down. The album is filled with fun tones. Growling square and saw tones create repressive and claustrophobic moods.
